While I did / do not mind supporting your efforts, I am not really in favor of paying again if I need to download elementary again, for instance for a clean reinstall, or just to always have the current release on hand in full form.

How can I download without paying again?

    Kudos for donating. In future you can enter $0 as a 'custom amount'. – elmato Jan 2 '16 at 16:19

    I'm not sure this is a duplicate of those questions, since it's specifically how to download without paying. Neither of those questions ask or answer that. – Lewis Goddard Jan 2 '16 at 18:14

    I was afraid this would happen - that people would think the payment is mandatory. (Of course we all know elementary needs money, don't get me wrong.) – user31389 Jan 2 '16 at 19:51
  • @LewisGoddard I too not sure but here both answers explained I think – Ravan Jan 3 '16 at 2:12

Firstly, thank you very much for supporting development by purchasing a copy of elementary OS. It's our primary source of income and the vast majority of people choose to never pay anything. So we really appreciate your initial payment.

If you ever need to re-download elementary OS, you can always click the "custom" button and type in "0". This will completely bypass the payment dialog.

However, I do please ask that for new versions you consider a small payment. Without continued funding, our development pace and infrastructure will be impacted.
